The Time Travelers Wife

So this weekend I kept it in and caught up on TV. HBO was showing, “The Time Travelers Wife,” and I decided to give a shot. I’m a sucker for romance and love stories so I thought why the heck not. The movie definitely did not disappoint.
The premise of the movie is about a man who suffers from a rare genetic disorder that forces him to travel through time when under extreme duress. He usually travels to the same places; however, he never knows when he’s going or for how long. Surprisingly he ends up falling in love and marrying a young woman. The movie stars Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana.
When time is not promised with the person you love, it makes you appreciate them even more. In a world where we are swamped with work, TV and technology it what nice to see true and lasting romance. A lot of times we take the relationships and friendships we have for granted because we never think the person is going anywhere but we live to die and need to treat each moment and experience as if it could be our last.
I love quotes and one that really sums it up is from the movie, “Troy,”. Brad Pitt says, “The Gods envy us. They envy us because we are mortal. Cause any moment could be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we are doomed….”
Time stops for no one and this movie about love and time traveling was incredible. To not know how long you have with someone each minute and experience is incredible and you look at the big picture. All of the small arguments and disagreements seem petty and futile when confronted with the idea that the person you love most can be taken from you at any given moment.
For those who haven’t seen the movie, please give it a watch and you and that special someone should plan a dinner date to Goldfish restaurant. Get a booth and eat next to each other. The ambiance is beautiful and for those who are single, make it a girls night out. It never hurts to show how much you care.

    Technology is really distracting when it comes to dating. So much time is spent on twitter & Facebook and not on getting to know someone. Good call.
